Public scrutiny surrounding cross-border acquisitions of U.S. companies has increased in recent years as a result of several high-profile deals that have drawn attention to the U.S. government’s screening of foreign investment. The interagency body responsible for the reviews is known as the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).  OFII works to ensure the CFIUS process remains non-politicized and focused on true national security concerns, thereby maintaining a favorable environment for cross-border transactions that benefit the U.S. economy.
